Cleveland Plain Dealer, October 16, 2008
Just months after breaking off talks with University Hospitals, Medina General Hospital has agreed to explore the possibility of joining the Cleveland Clinic system. Cleveland Clinic's President and CEO Toby Cosgrove, MD, announced the negotiations in a message to Clinic staff. "I wanted to inform you that Cleveland Clinic has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with Medina General Hospital to explore the possibility of the hospital becoming a part of the Cleveland Clinic's health system," Cosgrove said. "The affiliation would maintain the current open medical staff model, where community physicians would continue to have privileges at Medina General Hospital."
